John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band for 50th Anniversary Deluxe Reissue

0

A super deluxe eight-disc collection celebrating the 50th anniversary of John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band will be released on April 16 via Capitol/UMC.

The reissue is described as a “deep listening experience and deep exploration” of John Lennon’s first solo studio album which was recorded in 1970 shortly after the Beatles split.

In addition to tracks from the original album, the 2021 release will also include never-before-seen demos, rehearsal outtakes, jams and studio conversations – and in total John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band will feature 87 previously unreleased recordings.

The project was fully licensed by Yoko Ono Lennon who oversaw production and creative direction, with the album newly mixed from high-res 192kHz/24-bit transfers by Paul Hicks, Rob Stevens and Sam Gannon – the same team who previously worked on the 2018 albums. Imagine – The Ultimate Collection.

To mark the news, Capitol/UMC released the new Ultimate Mix of Mother and shared a video trailer for the album – which can be found below.

The Super Deluxe Edition will be presented on 6CDs and 2 Blu-rays and will also include a 132-page book, a War Is Over! poster and two postcards.

John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band will also be released on CD, 2CD, 6CD and 2LP.
